Bromyard Hop Festival

The economic and cultural heritage of Herefordshire’s hop-growing industry has always centred on Bromyard, including Bishop’s Frome and the Frome Valley.

With estimated crowds of nearly 5,000 and the Hop Race was streamed live worldwide. The day features the unique event, the Hop Pocket World Championship, part of a full day’s programme of events.

Bromyard Christmas Lights

Bromyard is a very special place all year round but never more so than at Christmas when the main streets are festooned with strings of lights for the town’s fabled Christmas Illuminations, reputed to be the best display in Herefordshire.

The Big Switch-On of Bromyard’s annual ‘Christmas Lights’, accompanied as always by a busy day of Yuletide events.
